teal blue recycled glass necklace
cabine's teal blue recycled glass necklace with handmade gold metal Ethiopian beads. 39" clasp to clasp.
cabine's recycled glass beads are handmade in Africa by the Krobo tribe of Ghana. Honoring a centuries old technique, the Krobo crush the glass into a very fine, dry grain and heat so pieces begin to form together. Using the stem of a cassava leaf for the hole, it is then baked in a furnace causing the stem to burn away. The end result is a beautiful up-cycled and sustainable bead.
